Turn This Book into a Beehive introduces kids to the amazing mason bee, a non-aggressive, super-pollinator that does the work of over 100 honeybees. Twenty activities and hands-on experiments reveal even more about bees—use a balloon and static electricity to understand how pollen “leaps” from a flower, make a bee buzzer to demonstrate how bees’ wings make their buzzing noises, use the perforated pages and cover to turn parts of the book into a literal beehive for mason bees, learn how bees communicate with one another through “dance,” and more. It’s the real buzz on bees, delivered in the most ingenious and interactive way.
